tyrant-of-tea asked: If you could reboot any franchise, what would it be and what changes would you make?
totalkerfuffle asked: Do you consider watching old, black-and-white movies to be more nerdy or just plain weird?
I have, for years, thought that Timothy Ferris (acclaimed science writer) and Tim Ferriss (4 hour work week) WERE THE SAME DUDE! I was always like, That Tim Ferriss guy seems like a bit of a dill hole, but he sure does a great job of making profound and awesome science understandable. What a weird mix, between egotistical and genius he’s got goin’ on. In fact, it’s hard to...

charmingdarkness asked: If you wrote a non-fiction, popular science book called No Edge, maybe with the aid of questions sent in by nerdfighters asking not only about cosmology, but also everything else amazing within this mind-blowing universe of ours... Well, that might just be the best thing ever.

I HAVE EXTREMELY EXCITING NEWS BUT I CANNOT SHARE IT! AHHHH!!!! I’M SO SORRY I’M SUCH A HORRIBLE TEASE. GOOD LORD, AGH! Tomorrow morning, I think.

twoworldsoneheart asked: Hey Hank, the other day I met someone who swore left and right that we never landed on the moon, I know these people are actually quite frequently found, but it got me wondering what your opinion was on this matter! *Insert laugh here* Bye!
somuchplay asked: Hello Hank! Some friends and I were discussing body hair, and we were wondering if there were some evolutionary reason for only having body hair where we have it, such as the lower arms, underarms, lower leg, etc. We came up with some pretty sweet hypotheses, none of which stood up very long to logic, so I decided to ask you :D
historicalbird asked: Hey Hank, I hope you don't mind that I did a portrait of you. I generally ask people before posting my paintings of them, but I kinda figured your face is everywhere already. Anyway, if you do check it out, I hope you like it! :)))

You know I was kidding right?
So I made my video today for two reasons. One, because I wanted to showcase and comment upon the vast amount of cute that we have in our world, because it’s fun to think about things we don’t think about (even if I’m thinking about them in idiotic ways.) But the other reason is that I wanted to point out a few ways to make a ludicrous argument seem semi-sane. This is how...
